Kiwi-Sea cocktail, with fresh kiwi, light or spiced rum, apricot brandy, lemon juice, and agave syrup


The Kiwi-Sea is a brilliant concoction from Kurtis Bosely, a cocktail consultant and brand ambassador for Moët Hennessy. For us northern hemispherians, kiwifruit are a summer treat – but Bosely is based in New South Wales, Australia, where kiwi are an autumn crop. The Kiwi-Sea reflects that Oceanic seasonality, offering a comfortable palette of stone fruit and warm agave, set against rum and lemon, with just a hint of creamy tartness from the kiwi.

It may be heretical, but we think the Kiwi-Sea is quite nice with a light spiced rum, so long as the spice is mild and doesn’t dominate.

Peel and quarter the kiwi, and muddle it in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake vigorously. Double-strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a half-slice each of lemon and kiwi.
